Challenge: A Subarray with a Sum of 0

In this exercise, we will find a subarray whose sum turns out to be zero. Let's try it out.

Problem Statement #

You must implement the bool findSubZero(int* arr, int size) function, which will take in an array of positive and negative integers. It will tell us if there exists a subarray in which the sum of all elements is zero. The term subarray implies that the elements whose sum is 0 must occur consecutively.

An array with these contents would return true:

{6, 4, -7, 3, 12, 9}

Whereas this would return false as the elements which sum up to be 0 do not appear together:

{-7, 4, 6, 3, 12, 9}

Input #

An array containing positive and negative integers and its size.

Output #

Returns true if there exists a subarray with its sum equal to 0. Otherwise, the function returns false.

Sample Input #

arr = {6, 4, -7, 3, 12, 9} 
size = 6

Sample Output #
